I started the cube up in firewire mode and installed from a dual G4 PowerMacDid you have to do anything to get it installed? Or, did you just insert it, and boot and install?
I figured Apple would have a check in the installer to verify that you are installing it on the machines it says are fine (like iLife '06 and '08 did).
Count yourself lucky. You have to be very choosy about your background with a transparent menu bar. I'd rather have the GPU cycles back.That's quite impressive. I'm still bummed out though, that my first gen iMac G5 can't have a transparent menubar. Apparently Leopard on older hardware has it disabled.
Oh, I'm quite choosy when it comes to backgrounds, being an artist. I was really looking forward to the new menu bar. I would gladly trade up. To each his own, I guess.Count yourself lucky.

Not that I know of. There may be a defaults setting.Can you set that via Terminal?
I'm not fond of the idea of a transparent menu bar.
When I say choosy, I mean you have to choose the picture to suit your menu bar which invariable means compromises. If there was a way to change it, I would do it in a flash.Oh, I'm quite choosy when it comes to backgrounds, being an artist. I was really looking forward to the new menu bar.

Id love to do this on my imac 800mhz 17" G4.
Whats the process involved?
I have a macbook running leopard right now, if i firewire connect the two do i then boot the imac into firewire target mode then select my macbook from the list?
A quick little step by step would really help me out if anyone has done this before?
Start the mac you want to install to by holding down the 't' key until you see the Firewire logo on the screen. Connect it to another mac (that meets the minimum specs for Leopard) via firewire. Proceed with the installation targeting the mac in firewire mode to install to. Partition maps are important (PPC and Intel use different ones - whole other topic) but if you use a PPC to install, you will be fine.Thanks but i was hoping for a little more than that....
